? >> actually the southeast sector and the whole eastside of the city is served by scrapyards and existing metal recyclers. >> okay. >> so they can establish a zone there and that creates nearby what is called "nearby convenience." that kind of exempts the supermarkets. >> okay. >> so you are okay there. say you have got this kind of odd schizophrenia with lots of things over on 3rd street, nothing over on the west side and the north side. but that is why you are okay there in terms of providing recycling. >> okay. >> and commissioners, just for your reference in the back of your binder is a google map of all the recycling centers in the city. the blue ones are the existing centers and the salmon-colored ones that are ones that are recently no longer existing or planned to be existing? >> okay. commissioner dwight? >> to me it sounds like an innovation opportunity in a city that provides innovation and ecology and the component through some kind of notification, some mobile application for arranging the people who have the goods to those that want to collect it. and it seems like it's so
development. i warriors, i can understand how the port and city want to develop this pier because they've been trying to develop it. they voted in 1990 to develop the waterfront until there was a comprehensive waterfront [speaker not understood] to try to get the international [speaker not understood] cruise terminal built. [speaker not understood] the economy and the cost of updating the pier now the fiscal feasibility study which you supervisors have actually approved would cost the tax payers $120 million. there's also another thing that is really critical is the congestion. the super congestion in the area. luckily i live in this area because i wanted the multi ple transportation bay area options to me and i walk to bart every day. i don't have to drive a car. but there is a lot of small businesses that are in the live-work units, commuters, people who come and go. and i understand how this plan to have 600 additional parking spaces and 200 on the other lot will fit into the city's adopted congestion management program. that affects all the funding and so forth, so, thank you. >> thank you
wasn't in san francisco, but it's in other cities and my gut feeling was a few years ago when mobile food trucks came out, oh, that won't affect us here, but guess what, that is affecting us here. you are starting to see them pop up. there was the rubber person selling the rubber stuffer out the truck and they vanished and i haven't seen them around. i have seen a small truck with clothes in the commission and i'm okay, it's going to start to happen. if we could take about that at one of the meetings because that is going to happen sooner or later. >> i have seen women's clothing trucks at levi plaza. >> so yes, commissioners, that is starting to be a standing agenda with the policy committee, but we have beening to doing work and staff member christin murdock is staffing the work on this and we'll proficient you with a more detailed update at the general meeting. x any other items? >> next item. >> item 15, adjournment. >> motion. >> second. >> all in favor? >> aye. >> commissioners the meeting is adjourned at 7:10 p.m. >> when the new california academy of sciences
that the city is doing and the police department is doing around the crisis intervention teams and i would like to go a step further in the new year to look at that and see how we are hitting our stride in the crisis response within the department and in putting this team together and the training that is really necessary for us to do the kind of policing that we know can deescalate the crisis that people find themselves in. i see it separate from the issue of tasers and electronic control weapons. it is almost like we are backwards in training a team to be able to deescalate violence and mental health crisis, and at the same time equip them with a tool that if used could have a detrimental effect on the deescalation, and also, it could open a door for, you know, greater usage within the department. that is my personal concern. and it has been a lot of people in san francisco share, i think that you can go out on the road in san francisco, and you can find a lot of people who are going to give, you know, license to the department to move forward on that. i think that as moving forward, i think
side of the city. but not only, not exclusively, though. >> and i had a question about the safe routes to schools. i know that there are two on the list. i'm wondering does dph and dpw and even the school district look at the city-wide needs and prioritize it or does it just come up -- well, why would ert [speaker not understood] be on the list and not -- betsy car michael and schools in the bayview, for example? but i'm just wondering. >> right. there are actually three safe routes to school applications, et cetera, on this list. they do stem from a combination of identification efforts. one is a city-wide identification of project needs and there are also walking audits that are performed by the department of public health and also the safe routes to school members to identify specific projects to be implemented in the near future. >> and the two that i see on the list look like they're build outs and it looks like they cost [speaker not understood] for a build out. that sounds like a lot of money for a build out. i'm wondering if you could talk a little about that. >> as far as the
and i served as at the attorney general's office. we are raising three girls in the city. native san franciscan and i am happy we are brought together to shine a light on what we have done and what we need to do. >> good evening. i am julie turman and i have been on the police commission for a we're and a half and i'm a labor and employment attorney. i am excited to be here this evening to talk about the issues of domestic violence. i am grateful for the commissioner of status of women for holding the joint meeting with us and it's a pleasure to be with you and sit across my my friend. >> good evening. i am carol kingsley. i have been on the police commission for a little over two years. my day job is as an mediator of business disputes. kingsley mediation services. i always for the last 20 years have been serving on the board of the law center to prevent gun violence, a nonprofit organization aimed at sensible gun legislation to reduce gun violence and applaud the upcoming december 15 gun buy back by omega boys club so kudos to them. thank you very much commission on status
to participate in many of the massage parlor inspections. that to me was another example of our city being incredibly innovative in figuring out a way to confront the challenges that we do face particularly in the area of human trafficking on one side. i think it all fits to having this hearing tonight, the work of the family violence council for me - i feel like a broken record, i feel it is a model, the benefit of being both a city and county, in some respects it is easier to bring all partner agencies together by choice or by hook. but i would urge us to continue to look at regional partnerships and for ways to support this beyond our boundaries. the crimes are not just within our boundaries. >> a want to make this comment before we go into public comment, more question than anything else. in the spirit of how i do business. this is the part of tonight's agenda. i'm not saying it should have been. but tonight looking at the response of domestic violence, the prosecution rates, the query reporting module, and the other things i'm curious about the status of women. at some point
seniors or people with disabilities who lived in sro's city-wide and 68 percent of them were tenants who lived in nonprofit sro's, which are more likely to have these grab bars already installed than their private counterparts but even with that, we found less than 40 percent of tenants indicated they currently have grab bars, which is not nearly enough considering that many of the private buildings we had issues with barriers and even getting in. we expect that number city-wide to be a lot higher. i also just wanted to say about tenants. i did outreach on a weekly basis and i hear from tenants all the time that they are afraid of slipping and falling in the shower. they are having a hard time geting off the toilet which in many cases are in strange positions close to the wall, further away from the wall, i get that feedback all the time. one tenant i see all the time that i saw last week she has her ihss case worker sit right outside the bathroom while she takes her shower because she is afraid she will fall and won't be able to call out for the help she needs if she falls. i do und
the safety net going for victims in the city. i want to thank everyone for their leadership to get to this point in my question is, we talked about this a few weeks ago before the police commission. i think you are doing a great outreach to the community. obviously part of my concern that talk about over the last few weeks is in light of recent events in the city. the concern is that women who don't speak english or are living in poverty will have concerns about reaching out of the police department. we want to reassure and reach out. can you talk about your efforts to reach out to communities through various newspapers in different languages and how the department is getting the message out that we do have access to other languages and can serve diverse populations? >> anytime there is a community meeting, and it is based on a certain ethnicity group, we try to have interpretation service provided. we will post those signs in that language, so if it is held in chinatown or wherever, for that outreach. it is important when the victim makes the police report; it helps
's cup and whatever -- the 12 things were happening in the city the same day. absolutely outstanding job. that is a very unique and singular situation. america's cup is not a great comparison because it's specific dates. it's not many days a year every year into eternity. and, so, i think this is much more about the structural day-to-day operations of muni. >> thank you. that's where i was going. so, when we did this episodic heavy lift, we learned there are going to be things hard to sustain. why do we not do this kind of service all the time? what are the capital shortcomings of the system that make it hard for us to run the e line and augment the others? what are the operational challenges? because to get a bunch of operators in for a big day is one thing. how do you sustain that, how do you train the drivers in advance? how do you have a graduating class well before the demand? this year a few things given me a greater sense of confidence. we worked on this and did some of the planning at the hunters point shipyard. to procure the streetcars we need, we need them three years in advan
. it will not constrain the city's ultimate decision about what to do, what sharp park, they will not alter or change the kind of alternative the city will consider as it goes through this processes. all it will do is apply the two separate proceedings as [speaker not understood]. the reason this is important is items of that golf course plan are exceptionally controversial and have skipped specific ceqa proceedings required under law. it could not go through scoping. it did not go through the notification of other public partners that must comment on the plan. and the city is at great risk of unneeded ceqa litigation if this resolution does not pass. i don't believe it is necessary to extend this another time period. it's been sitting on the docket since june and we've been awaiting comments from rec and park and planning and the city attorney ever since and haven't heard a word. so, we find it kind of surprising all of a sudden they are objecting to this resolution. so, we would request that you not continue this motion and pass it on to the board today. thank you. >> thank you. mr. drasani? >>> go
for the city to buy back guns instead of one time or once a year or twice a year, why not have a room where you are turn in a gun and why not increase the money, the money that you get when you turn in a gun? make it a little bit sweeter to turn in a gun. >> this will not be the last gun buy back. >> but how many times do we do that in a year, gun by backs? >> this was the first gun buy back in some time. we used to do them, if i recall correctly, commander cepb shah when he was here was the last time we did them twice a year. >> well, every community meeting at the bayview station we talked about guns, guns turned in, guns found, guns guns guns. if we were more proactive they'd be getting guns offer the street, we'd get more guns back. i'm sure there's money available for that. it just seems to be common sense. >> i think this is the kind city of san francisco-sfgtv. recreation and park commission meeting. (meeting will commence shortly) just insiste. >> we're back on the record, commissioners. do i have a motion with reference to line item no. 8, which is to vote whether to disclose any
that limit is that state or city? >> that was set in the original law passed in the 1980's? >> do we have any flexibility? >> no, i'm pretu sure that is established in statute, but it could be changed. >> i am thinking that instead of paying $100, we could base on the sales volume of the size of their business. >> right. i think if you started to change it, that the oppositions would be quite broad. for instance the supermarket would pay a different rate than the beverage dealers, based on volume, something like that. >> thank you. >> do you want to take this to committee? >> i would like to read through them and we can go through them rear view relatively quickly and see if any other recommendations that might have. >> the sbc encourages the department of the environment to pursue mobile redemption sisters, mobile redemption centers rotating basis could be a potential solution for the coming up next the city should resalute the geographic distribution of centers with the goal of expending them to parts of city underserve. additionally the geography of san francisco and density shou
for the city. while the situation requires a lack of morality on the part of the employees i also believe this constitutes veting of who is suitable for promotion. those less favored are given poor job assignments, closely watched, unjustly disciplined and otherwise harassed while also required to do the work of the goof-offs. as hards department's customers in addition to fleecing them of as frp money as possible, evidenced by the department's use of an unauthorized permit routing procedure to see the application everywhere possible to see if some additional fees can't be tacked on to the permit costs. the fees collected are not kept and spent by this department but by the administer of finance with director hue's approval. of course the more money the mayor gets the more likely he is to keep the appointees around. this department leaves little money for the department to function although --. >> thank you. >> i'm going to finish the sentence. >> you are off, you are not allowed -- your 3 minutes is up, sir. thank you very much. >> handsomely compensated political appointees to keep
impact that we believe might occur and what types of investments do we as a city need to make to address the demands. we have some of the highest collisions between pedestrians and vehicleses in the south of market. so, how will this project impact those rates? second, we asked questions whether we can support bike infrastructure in that neighborhood to increase bike circulation so folks can bike to and [speaker not understood]. third, we have questions about what public transit investment costs are and to meet the demands of additional gains in this neighborhood. we've already seen what muni has been able to do with giants home games. so, we have already some data analysis around what that might cost with additional warriors games. and i actually just want to bring up a point that one of my colleagues brought up last week at the budget committee meeting which i had not thought of, being that i don't represent outer portions of the city, but supervisor chiu brought up when we have giants home game night, muni doesn't run all the way to the sunset. i'm sure we experience that in other ou
in new york city that is undergoing significant development. so, i have all of the same concerns in the area where i live and i take them very seriously and so do we all. but we are trying to create a situation that will alleviate those fears and concerns and at the same time provide economic development and job growth for the neighborhood for the city and the region. we're focused on making this a place where families and other people of the neighborhood and the city can enjoy themselves. and the space that is today a surface parking lot of about three acres in a degrading concrete pier. this is something we all feel we can only improve the quality of life, the property and social values of the neighborhood as we take the concerns of those nearby to heart. thank you very much. >> thank you, mr. dikers. i actually just had a couple of comments, more comments than questions. i just want to express -- by the way, thank you so much for the presentation. the design is beautiful, and i thank the comments and feedback that we got. there is general consensus that it was presented to the
will be helpful. i worked well with the city and the oaklands. i first heard about the cta in grad school. i was studying as inner local inner regional body. my interest in transportation, i'm a computer and -- commuter and i like to serve the city. >> do you see yourself having a particular focus of priority as a member of the cse? >> two things, i would like to -- my interest are basically west to east and east to west since i live in the sun set. i'm also curious to see how the brt come through. >> okay. any comments or questions? thank you mr. goldsmith. any other candidate for district four seat or district six seat? we have any candidates for district nine come forward. if you're interested in making a statement. >> i enjoyed my role on the citizen's advisory committee. being a committee member who held them accountable and transparent. additionally i say my over ten years of work in the community, working in nonlot ofs and serving on the community board give me a wide perspective of issue that's many communities have. getting around san francisco whether it's by foot, by bus, by car,
with transportation project we work on in the city. transportation money is limited and we have to look at the utility of the project in relation to the land use that's adjacent and see if there's a way to capture it it. the other side of it is, this potential oakdale cal train station is too important. it's too good of an opportunity separated transit access for folks around that station to downtown and to the airport in places south of valencia and somehow include it because of the bridge work. that's the origin of this whole effort. it's not my favorite sport to close city streets. this is a way that you can have your cake and eat it. we can have the connector road, but we can have this potentially fabulous connection from that part of town into downtown where employment is going at the same time. in the process perhaps give the poc a more useable piece of land where currently we have industrial uses that are -- i would surmise based on highest use of that space and a street that's definitely under utilized. >> great, thank you. commissioner cohen? >> thank you very much. i like to take a chance an
organizations and also the city commissioner. i am here today to respond to someone who said that we don't know what the no lethal long-term effect of tasers are, as a volunteer to be tasered in 2004. this year my living proof of the long term damage of tasers to my sciatic nerve and the conjunctive tissue between the femur and the bone that is permanent and that is why i have been walking with a cane. but i am here to address you how severely concerned we are about sanctuary city, potentially being equipped with tasers. you probably saw some of the national tests, and 7 people are being killed by tasers, nationwide. and 766 people have been killed by tasers. nationwide, since 1983. and a long those, 177 people in california, who are actually the top state like this, about the taxes and we are above florida. and also need to mention to you that 41.9 percent of people killed by tasers in california were latino or hispanic decent. i have all of the names for you, do we want sanctuary to commit that atrosty, please consider it and apply political pressure on the subcommittee for tasers for the pol
in many places of the city is running for 2,500 or even $3,000 a month. large studios are often running for $2,000 or more a month. and many people simply cannot afford these rents. we have a lot of people who are living in roommate situations and sometimes cramming in more people than they probably should into some of these roommate situationses. and i believe people should have the option, if they want, to live on their own in a smaller unit with their own kitchen and with their own bathroom. these units will also support a growing national and international trend of what we call cooperative housing where people have smaller private spaces, but share larger centralized common areas in buildings. we're seeing this with various kinds of housing, including senior housing. mr. chairman, i respectfully request that the committee support today in forwarding this legislation today board. and, mr. chairman, if you don't have any comments, we can -- does planning have a report? >> yes. >> so, we'll hear from planning. >> thank you, good afternoon, chairman swedener, sophie hewett planning staf
what is going on and the city officer talking to the abusive party who a lot of times is a lot more proficient in english and it creates a dynamic of mistrust, we are grateful to the officers who are willing to use their personal cell phones to call language line. the reality is, in the resource environment that we are in, getting the bilingual officer to the scene is time-consuming and elongates the whole process. not having access to a cell phone for an officer forces him into position to use whatever is available or the personal cell phone. that should not be the case. one thing we do, i want to mention as a program, as a policy that we would like to see,we would like to see language line gets training on domestic violence awareness and maybe cultural competency issues. they provide a huge service to the city. the city is one of their biggest clients. i think there is a lot to be said for the idea that language in and of itself is not a panacea; it is not monolithic. there is a difference between saying a restraining order and saying something else, and how you eve
from the city attorney's office and i'm requesting that. there are a lot of issues here. there is the pending litigation that was just referred to. there is the issue of the fact we're in the middle of the e-i-r. pulling apart the e-i-r in the middle of the proceeding and what the ceqa impacts are. i wouldn't feel comfortable proceeding waynn or the other until we receive -- make a request of the city attorney and i'm requesting of the chair to keep that in mind as our request because i think we would all benefit from having advice from the city attorney's office. >> and mr. givener, also, is this a binding resolution or nonbinding one? those are the questions i would like answered as well. thank you. >> absolutely, we can pass all those questions to the committee. >> great, thank you. there is a motion to continue -- there is a motion to continue until december 3rd at the request of supervisor olague. and my hope is that she shows up for that meeting or her staff are here so that -- and also rec and park staff as well so we can have a thorough dialogue and discussion o
in a police car and no cost to the city for a period of some six years. >> can you explain to me what to do any member of the audience what a defibrillator is? >> i'm looking around to see if i see one and in most of our buildings we have them. dispersed and they are within the police department and certainly within the city haul. it is basically for a individual who has a heart stoppage and basically you place the device on the chest of the person, and that device measures all of the activity of that person's body and applies a charge to start their heart if necessary. it is not a choice, that the officer or the operator should say, makes. >> to me, the fact that you need a defibrillator points to the underlying danger here. that if tasers are so safe, why do you need to have a defibrillator available? >> it was the recommendation that came from one doctor. although there is not a single. there is one case out of arizona where the medical examiners identified tasers as being the cause of death. and every single other case there are a multitude of issues surrounding the in-custody death but
was involved --. >> what's his name? >> is the same person. >> john malmouth from the city attorney's office. the item on the agenda is not for action so the actual selection is not before you. this is still just a discussion item. >> so i'm confused. >> me, too. >> does that mean -- i thought that this body had the -- or do you mean it's just not listed as such and we can't take action until january? >> correct. while the bic has the authority to authorize the contract, the way it's been -- the way it's angendized for today's calendar does not allow you it take action today. >> so we can post it as an action item. >> correct. >> parliamentarian. >> well, actually, the buck stops here with me. i was under the impression we're taking action on this today. i have it apologize to my fellow commissioners, that was the whole idea we were going to discuss it here today. so, with that, can i amend that now at this stage? no? >> no. i think the options that are available to the commission if you want to act on this quickly is to schedule a special meeting and find a date in january. i think
other question? >> i am wondering if justis is any different. >> i know their systems in the city and county of seven san francisco to collect to colect, for background checks, as far as justis replacing the cable system, justis will assist individual departments in creating the roll up reports. we have not received whether to the technical steering committee or the justis council, and requirements to connect federally. >> i asked because of my background. i was curious because one thing that was helpful about the cable system is that you could do a check without reporting someone to immigration. i was curious about that. who analyzes the data? you should is the capabilities and the types of reports that we could pull. is their body that will pull the status of reports and doing an analysis on a regular basis? >> each department analyzes their data. the source of the data has to verify the data. they also have to be able to give permission for other departments to use that data. the analysis belongs at the departmental level. what we do is that once the police department
in this city. i hope that more resources again, go into educating people maybe, even on on the in the school levels where you have a lot of young people, a lot of people in elementary school age who are being exposed to violence in their homes. and that they learn early too that that is not the type of behavior that they should be engaged in as they get older and as they grow up. because we know frequently that the people who are witnessing this type of situation themselves they say, become perpetrators so i just hope that it leads to more education, in the schools. and it leads to more education from people who are being exposed to violence. and so that they understand how to extracate themselves from the domestic violence situations and that there are more resources given so that women and men who are in domestic violence situations where the means to extricate themselves because that is frequently not the case, the people from the working class and lower income don't have those means. and people who are not from that economic class, don't always have the self-awareness, or the education t
that it is entirely premature to investigate a pilot program for tasers in this city, had the department moved more quickly to implement the cit training the incident this summer may have been avoided. tasers constitute a significant level of force as we have heard today. too often, they are viewed as homeless, non-lethal devices that temporarily incompass taits that is false. when use as intended they cause pain and as we have seen across the nation they pose a risk of serious jury or death. >> as you have heard today, in particular people with mental health problem are more likely to be at high risk of death, and with that high population in san francisco and coming in contact often with the san francisco police department, we don't want to run a risk of that population being impacted. and the aclu is also concerned with the civil rights implications that the supervisors spoke of today. you know, across the nation and in san francisco, you will see the african american communities of color are impacted by accessive use of force that would lead us to believe that once they are instituted they woul
for inviting the city administrator's office. my name is linda young, deputy city administrator. i will discuss quickly the justis project. the transfer of function to the city of ministers administrator's office which occurred in march, 2011. our mission is to support the criminal justice department and need to share information in compliance. the justis project is to provide sharing data get abilities, provide individual case management system to address departmental business needs for the police department, the sheriff department, district attorney's office, public defender, adult probation and to connect the court system. the city administrator is the executive sponsor and will provide oversight and operational decision making .the council provides budget decision-making. the technical steering committee meets on technical issues and we do that weekly. some of the development since the transfer of functions. at the time of the transfer from a staffing perspective the program only had four feel positions out of eight budget it. since that time we promoted to of our own staff and
it was another huge courageous move so i feel both the state and our diverse and wonderful city has had a real challenge and i think we're finally getting back up to where we need to be. we need folks to know they can trust everyone in the room, every system that will come through for them, and i think this is reflected in our report. >> thank you. >> all right. i am really hoping that all the wonderful things that are being said about domestic violence will be said about elder abuse in the next few years. as a field elder abuse prevention lags behind domestic violence by 20 years and that's a shame because elders are the fastest growing segment of the population and a thousand people turning 65 everyday in the country and san francisco likes to be first in everything and aging is no different. we have the unique population and the highest percentage of senior citizens in an urban area in california and we know many will develop some form of dementia so we have a very vulnerable population, so i want to touch on the numbers in the slide and we see in 2011 we had 6,000 reports and we have
violence in this city or measures that could be taken, but that we also look at it from a professional law enforcement perspective and invite the other, you know, key players in the city, the mayor's office, the board of supervisors, occ, of course, and everybody to, you know, roll up their sleeves and look at the best of what's out there professionally to see if we can't improve on our statistics in san francisco. so that's my proposal on the table. >> i agree. if we can have a presentation with the community present and have the chief explain about what our police department does, for example, with atf in terms of taking guns off the street, i know there's programs in place with that. just anything we can do to help. as i'll say, we're going to close this meeting tonight and commissioner kingsley is going to close the meeting in honor of the victims in connecticut, she'll have some things to say then, but gun violence has had an adverse impact on members of this commission and i see this as an opportunity to protect others from that. >> if i can add, i think anything we do in the city
'd like some city services that doesn't involve the police. the police are doing a very good job. we have 3 bicycle officers, we have calls, we have people up and down. we like having police. we'd like to have some city services to take care of some of what we call the antisocial behavior in the plaza -- drinking, public urination, public other stuff that people do in the middle of the day. the city already sends somebody out for two hours in the morning from 4:00 to 6:00 or 5:00 to 7 klak to power wash the plaza every day. we're spending a lot of money as taxpayers. we think we can do better. we appreciate the police, they're doing a great job, but what we'd like you to do and the reason i'm here is i'm asking you to make some calls, get other agencies involved, a multi tier, multi level approach, we just need some help. the other thing, just out of interest, i got all this from the department of records also. this is about 24th and mission and 16th and mission and the calls for service there are fewer than 20 in a year, which i found very interesting, considering the bad pr for tha
statistics go, total violent crime in the city remains relatively flat. our property crime is up about 9 percent, arrests are up, which is understandable, about 9 percent in addressing that. with regard to statistics, though, we did uncover yet another gap as we get better technologically, captain flaherty in preparation for our last meeting with the commission on status of women saw that the stats for db numbers, she felt they were a bit low. she discovered the reporting was for the fiscal year, she got with director giffin and looked at them for the calendar year and indeed they were low. i ordered an immediate audit for all of our numbers and we discovered when we changed over approximately 8,000 police reports hadn't been scanned in for purposes of comstat. that obviously is going to click up our year to date statistics but at least they will be accurate. a lot of these reports were closed cases, warrants, things like that, not necessary of any follow-up but not wanting to risk anything, captain flaherty did an audit of the 106 cases that hadn't been scanned in that would have be
